If you’re a design geek–or if you’ve got any Eames-era bent-wood in your house–this bike basket is will make you sweat. It’s designed by Faris Elmasu, a 25-year old designer based in San Francisco.
The nylon straps do away with ugly bungee cords–and the nylon is strong enough to hold a six-pack of beer. (But what about two six packs? C’mon, Faris!). The bent-wood is five layers thick, made with vacuum forming. (It actually looks a lot like the Eames-designed leg splint we love so much.)
Currently the basket is available by order through Elmasu himself. But there’s a patent pending–so maybe mass production will come sometime soon?
